The Long Weekend!

Well where do I start! ok... Thursday night.. Tayla was peeling the carrots (she loves to do this) & decided to peel a potato! well she did ok until she sliced through the top of her finger & her nail!!! the bleeding just wouldn't stop she was almost beside herself poor sweetie... it really must have hurt, it was a brand new peeler OUCH! we got her cleaned up, no stitches needed! & she's all good again! Friday.. off to Dreamworld or a few hours, Saturday.. shopping.. kids got the Nintendo Wii... they're having a blast... so is DAD! Sunday.. we rush Nick off to the Allamanda hospital... asthma attack!! waited for over 45mins (while TWO doctors sat talking) while my son can hardly breathe, finally one of them gets up & comes over. They gave him a strong dose of steriods & told hubby if he didn't improve to bring him straight back... then proceeded to charge us $225.00 for the visit which is fine, but get this... it was for a LONG CONSULTATION!!!! the doctor was only with them for about 10-15mins!!! I don't mind paying... I simply don't have any faith in the public system in emergencies.. been there done that! that's why we went private!!! I don't put a price on my son's life... but I'm absolutely annoyed about where they get off sometimes, they sit around for 3/4 quarters of an hour before they attend their patients then charge like wounded bulls!!!
Well now that's off my chest... Nick is slowly recovering, I've kept him home so I can keep an eye on him!!

Missy Moo playing baseball on the Wii...

Jordy doing his thing! Sunday afternoon soccer match...

These two were pushing & shoving each other the whole game!

Love how his tongue is sticking out... helps with concentration!!!

Taken a few days before her birthday!! I would love to know what she was thinking about in the second one... she sat there for ages deep in thought... sweet girl! Okay time to get off the computer... hubby says that I spend way too much time on here!! I thought after buying a Nintendo Wii for them today, they would leave me alone!!! no such luck, hubby keeps calling out to get off that bloody thing... it's starting to take over your life! yeah right!! Have a great weekend everyone! xx

There's just a few...

Lots of photos... hope I don't bore you!! These are the ones we did at "The Spit" hubby said that it was too cold as the wind was blowing a gale... but I was not going to let that stop me! I"ll only take a few was my response... nearly an hour later, I said "ok I've got enough we can go now", hubby said "what happened to getting just a few?" I told him I'd only taken a few... 100 or so is a few in my books LOL. besides in a few short years she will be doing her own thing on her birthday that will more than likely NOT include following her crazy mother for photoshoots! so I'm making the most of it while I can!! xx

Just playing around with these..

I think she was a little cold... cruel mama aren't I!! LOL.

These ones melt my heart! These two share such a special bond... as hubby says " she is my baby girl, and if I want to spoil her I will!" can't argue with that!

Birthday Girl...

A few of the birthday girl... the pink ipod nano was a huge hit... love the look of sheer joy on her face, she had no idea she was getting this one!! and she loves her gold bangle, she got a little bit spoilt this year... but hey you're only turn 10 once!! After Tayla opened her gifts we went to "The Spit" at Main Beach for some photos (which I'll share later)... she came up to me, wrapped her arms around me and said " thank you so much for everything mummy, this is the best birthday ever!!! so I think she had a pretty good day! xx

Hanging out...

Some quiet time at the beach. Can't remember why Samuel was home from school this day... but I'm sure he was having more fun here!! We didn't stay too long as the wind picked up (typical!) and we had to pick the others up from school.

A new friend... well for a few minutes anyway.

He wanted to take this little guy home... he loves ladybugs!

Sam's collection... he thought that the coconut was pretty cool!

Feeling spotty...

Missy Moo in her new skirt... I have way too much fun shopping for my baby girl... and you know what her daddy is just as bad if not worse!!! xxxx

excuse #1 & 2 they are not very clear not sure why!!

Flowers for his Mama...

I was getting ready for Easter & the arrival of family when Samuel came running in & said "mummy, I have a surprise for you" his hands were behind his back & he had the biggest grin on his sweet little face! " I have flowers for you" he said! & handed them to me " these are for you"... I thanked him & asked him what the flowers were for & he replied " because I love you"!!!! I absolutely love this kid, bless his little heart... I love you to moon & back baby! xxxx

A scenic drive...

To Byron Bay is what we got up to on Sunday... stopping first at Hastings Point, then on to Byron Bay. We hadn't been to Byron Bay before but we will definitely be going back... it was picture perfect!! and we had perfect weather to match!! We had fish & chips on the beach (naturally) then took a drive up to the Byron Bay lighthouse... we spent ages up there.. we walked out to the most Easterly point of the Australian Mainland.... WOW the view was incredible, we even managed to see Sea Turtles from all the way up there! On our way home we stopped at Coolangatta for drinks (& a much needed coffee for mum!!!) just as the sun was setting... the sky was just amazing, we stayed till it had gone down then made our way home... we had an absolutely wonderful day! xxx

Hastings Point...

Byron Bay...

The most Easterly point of Mainland Australia...

We must have seen at least 3-4 Sea Turtles...

Sunset-Coolangatta Beach...

I know this one breaks all the rules of photography... but sometimes the rules need to be broken... maybe that's why I love it so much!!
